Just replace "Porsche" with "Rolex" in the above and it sums it up quite nicely.

All over the world there are Porsche owners who are quietly thanking Dog that Mr Bean has decided against purchasing one.

I have a watch that I have had for about 18 years and I know nothing about it. Maybe some of you guys can help. It looks suspiciously like a
DOXA. I was told years ago that it was a military issue dive watch. Google searches turn up nothing.
